Reporting course absences

There have been some queries regarding the need to report an absence from a Whittlesea U3A course or activity. Tutors put a lot of effort into their classes, and a member should inform them if for any reason they are unable to attend. The Whittlesea U3A Membership Terms and Conditions states that it is the responsibility of a member to do this. You can find this under:
